Find the last side of the triangle using the Pythagorean theorem.
Use the Pythagorean theorem to find the unknown side. In any right triangle, the area of the square whose side is the hypotenuse (the side of a right triangle opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of areas of the squares whose sides are the two legs (the two sides other than the hypotenuse).
